The Star Finch is a bird that has intringued me, especially in Western

It is common to very common in Kununurra / Wyndham in the Kimberley if you
know where to look.  A pair turned up at the Argyle Diamond Mine (about
100km or so from Kununurra) at the start of this year which I have seen 3
times now in the same site, so they will probably become established.

The field guides show them distributed quite widely through the Pilbara &
Gascoyne.  I have seen a flock on the grass lawns of Paraburdoo.  They are
included in the bird lists for Millstream Chichester NP in the Pilbara, in
the Shire of Exmouth and in Carnarvon but I have failed to locate them at
these sites.  I wonder if the birds roam the Pilbara / Gascoyne depending
on the season / conditions or whether they are separate isolated
